A nifty post on one of my favorite blogs, strange maps, looks at the once and imaginary future subway in my hometown.
Rochester…New York? Or Michigan?
While not my hometown, I lived there for 5 years in the 80’s… nostalgia.
This subway map is so cool! Thanks for posting!
Very cool. Too bad at least a protion of it can’t be preserved. In my old Brooklyn neighborhood there is an abandoned 19th century freight tunnel running under my old street. It’s actually several miles long. There are organized tours about once a month. Also nearby is an abandoned subway station that now serves as the New York City transit museum. Both are definitely worth a visit.
are there any organizes tours of the Rochester, ny subway?I would love to get in there and take pictures. Please anyone let me know if you have any info on this. Thank you so much
Unfortunately there are no regularly scheduled tours of the abandoned subway tunnel. We toured the west end of the tunnel from Court St. thru the Aqueduct last September with the NYS Canal Authority and posted some good photos from that trip on our site. But that tour was part of Rochester’s River Romance weekend and was a one-time event. However, there are still ways to get into the tunnel and snap photos – though I wouldn’t recommend going down there in the cooler months.
